Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of Christmas/Winter themed inspiration using Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!

********************
Hi everyone! Loes here today to share my "Christmas in November" project with "Tradition" and some lovely Petaloo products. I can not wait to decorate everything in my house for Christmas!  Last week, I was in a very nice store and saw these amazing wood blocks. I knew immediately what I wanted to make with these awesome wooden blocks!




First I made them a little bit more vintage by using some sand paper.

After that, I decorated every side of each block. 


Decorating each block with the perfect trims and flowers from Petaloo was the fun part! I cut the large letters and made them a little bit thicker and glossy by using a versamark pad.  After that, I dipped them in ultra thick embossing enamel powder,and then used the heat gun.


Do you see how easy the decorating is working with the elements stickers? When I receive a new collection, the first thing I look at are the stickers. I love them!


Did you know that Petaloo also has some really nice fancy trims? They match their flowers perfectly.


I hope I was able to inspire you today!


Products Used:
Authentique: "Tradition" collection 12 x 12 papers,detail stickers
Petaloo: flowers, fancy trims
